Why I am supporting Lung Foundation Australia

My Story

I am taking part in the 'Shine a Light on Lung Cancer' campaign once again this year, to raise much needed funds for the Lung Foundation Australia. Their continual research is vital as it provides treatment options for those living with this horrendous disease. Treatment options that are allowing sufferers, just like my best friend Sam, the opportunity to enjoy another day with their loved ones, living life and making a lifetime of memories... Lung Cancer is indiscriminate. It targets the young. It targets the old. It targets strong, healthy men. It targets young, vibrant women. It targets smokers and unbelievably, I know, it targets non-smokers too! It is hideous. It is dangerous. It is deadly. It needs to be cured. Lung Cancer statistics are confronting and for those living with this diagnosis, I have no doubt that it is terrifying. Continued research into this cruel disease is desperately needed but to do that, funds are needed too. Currently only 1% of cancer research funding is dedicated to Lung Cancer, even though it is the #1 cancer killer (& that is a statistic that you do not want to be faced with when diagnosed with this heinous disease). Therefore, help fund much needed research into Lung Cancer by supporting my 'EPIC BOOTCAMP' fundraising event on Saturday, 24 November 2018 from 6.30am! Join me for a kick ar$e bootcamp at JC Slaughter Falls (at the base of Mt Coottha), where I guarantee you will sweat up a storm yet have a freakin good time while doing it! You will have fun, feel great and make friends, while raising some funds & your heart rate in the process! There will be give aways AND complimentary fruit available at the completion of the event so all you need to do to secure your spot at this EPIC BOOTCAMP is to donate now! I thank you in advance for any donation that you are able to make to my 'Here Comes the Hotstepper' fundraising page. All donations over $2 are tax deductible with all proceeds going towards funding a cure that will allow Sam, & other lung cancer sufferers, the privilege of growing old. Much love always xo

About Shine a Light on lung cancer

Anyone can get lung cancer. One Australian dies every hour from lung cancer, making it the leading cause of cancer death in Australia; more than breast, prostate and ovarian cancers combined.
Recent research has revealed one third of Australians believe people with lung cancer have only themselves to blame, while one in ten will say they got what they deserved.
This stigma surrounding lung cancer has a devastating impact on the level of funding, research and support available to people living with lung cancer. Lung Foundation Australia is working to break down the stigma and increase awareness and support for those with this neglected disease.
You can help make a difference.
Help Shine a Light on Lung Cancer in support of lung cancer research. These local community events bring together patients, their family and friends, health professionals, clinicians, and researchers as one resilient voice in support of more research funding and earlier diagnosis of lung cancer.
All funds raised through Shine a Light on Lung Cancer events will be invested into lung cancer research.
Get involved and help Lung Foundation Australia to continue to support and empower lung cancer patients, their families and carers.

You can make a donation online or set up your own fundraising page - it is simple. If you need assistance or would like to ask any questions please contact Amy Rymer on (07) 3251 3651 or amyr@lungfoundation.com

About my cause: Lung Foundation Australia

Anyone can get lung disease. It affects 1 in 4 Australians and is the second leading cause of death.

Lung Foundation Australia is the only charity in Australia providing support and a voice for people with lung disease, their families, carers, health professionals and the general community. 

We fund life-changing research and facilitate early detection by supporting best practice clinical management and delivering lung health programs. We work to empower those with lung disease to take the important steps they can to enjoy a better quality of life by understanding and managing their disease. 

Lung Foundation Australia works across all areas of lung disease, with a particular focus on Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), lung cancer and rare lung diseases including Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis (IPF), Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension (PAH), bronchiectasis and rare lung disease in children.  

We offer a range of support and services to help people to manage their lung condition and improve their lung health and wellbeing. Your generous donations ensure we can continue to: 

- Drive community awareness about lung health

- Fund word class research

- Advocate for people with a lung condition

- Provide information and support for patients

- Facilitate best-practice training and education for health professionals.

Lung Foundation Australia relies on funding from individuals, families, businesses and industry organisations and are deeply appreciated of this generosity. To increase our support for research, patients and advocacy, it is critical we continue to build our capacity to raise further funds in the community. 

Fundraise by creating your own fundraising challenge. Fundraising can be a lot of fun and a great way to get the community together for a purpose. 


Thank you for your kind support.
